Biofilm: What is it?
Biofilm is a layer of bacteria that can accumulate inside or on your body. The sticky white plaque that forms on your teeth and around your gums is a type of dental biofilm. Plaque needs to be removed because it can harden to tartar, also known as dental calculus, which can’t be removed at home.
It has been proven by scientific evidence that this Biofilm in the mouth, causes cavities, gum disease and has effects on your general well-being.
At Manor Dental Centre, Guided Biofilm Therapy includes oral hygiene instructions with Oral B/IO toothbrush, and Water flosser with patient education and motivation to maintain natural teeth and implants for as long as possible.
Why is GBT a "game changer"?
Dental biofilm is the main etiologic factor for caries (decay in teeth), periodontal (gum disease) and peri-implant infections (Infections around implants).
Periodontitis can increase the risk of systemic diseases, such as cardiovascular and respiratory disease, arthritis, or diabetes and more.
Regular oral hygiene, combined with professional measures keeps biofilm under control.
